Metabolic Contributors to Drought-enhanced Accumulation of Sugars and Acids in Oranges

  title={Metabolic Contributors to Drought-enhanced Accumulation of Sugars and Acids in Oranges},
  author={Brandon R. Hockema and Ed Etxeberria},
The nature of sink strength in orange fruit and changes occurring during drought stress were investigated. Potted trees of ‘Hamlin’ orange [Citrus sinensis (L.) Osbeck] grafted on Troyer citrange [Citrus sinensis x Poncirus trifoliata (L.) Raf.] were irrigated using a microsprinkler system creating either well-watered or water-stressed conditions, as determined by stem water potentials. Fruit were harvested every other week from trees of both wellwatered and drought-stressed treatments during… CONTINUE READING
